Updated for Swift 4, Xcode 9 and iOS 11 Swift Playgrounds.
A Swift Kickstart is the perfect book for the experienced developer who wants to get serious about learning the Swift programming language.
As the language matures and improves, this book changes to reflect the latest best practices and coding style. This second edition to the best-selling Swift introduction has been updated to the very latest public Swift 3 release.
It's never been easier to get started with Swift as this edition supports the new iOS Swift Playgrounds along with improved support for Xcode playgrounds. This means you can code along on a Mac or an iPad.
The book begins with an introduction to basic components of programming in Swift: functions, variables and constants, collections, and types from the Swift Standard Library.
In the second part, we create and use our own enumerations, structs, classes, and protocols.
Working your way through this book is a great way to learn the language of the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
You can read the book on any device that supports ePub or mobi. Single column view is recommended for either format. The book is best viewed as an ePub on a device that supports scroll view and uses the original fonts.
